ERRATIC SPACE: Treating space as unmapped/unknown terrain that becomes known by wandering and examination. This wandering, in association with photography, video, GPS technology, and other forms of data collection, develops a map of both the physical terrain and the artist's experience of it. Erratic Spaces/THE LAND is a gallery installation based on the artist's February 2010 residency at THE LAND/an art site.
Multi-media artist DON GILL teaches at Lethbridge University, Alberta. In addition to New Mexico, recent art projects have taken him to D'Arcy Island, British Columbia and New South Wales, Australia.
THE LAND/an art site, Inc., a nonprofit organization, provides environmental artists with opportunities to work and exhibit in New Mexico, and works to promote awareness of environmental issues through the arts. THE LAND maintains offices, a resource center and a gallery space, THE LAND/gallery, in downtown Albuquerque, and a forty-acre outdoor site in the foothills of the Manzano Mountains devoted exclusively to site-specific, environmentally low-impact, land-based art.

The LOS ANGELES URBAN RANGERS ANNOUNCE:
The Last-Hurrah Malibu Public Beaches Safaris
Sun. May 23 -- 9am, 11:30pm, and 2pm
We're wrapping up our 3-year Malibu project, and to celebrate our public beaches one last time, we're offering 3 (yes, three!) free mini-safaris. No sign-up required. All welcome!
What: Are you tired of Zuma and Surfrider? Want to find and use the the 20 miles of public beaches that are lined with private development? Our safaris will equip you with the advanced skills necessary to find and use the Malibu public beaches legally and safely. Activities include signwatching, trailblazing the public-private boundary, and a public easement potluck.
When: Choose 1 of the 3 start times (each lasts ~1 3/4 hrs). Please do not plan to join mid-safari.
Where: Come to the public beach accessway between 22140-22126 Pacific Coast Highway (~.5 mis west of Carbon Canyon Rd. and ~1 mi. east of Malibu pier). Park on either side of the PCH (cross with caution), and walk through the accessway to the beach. (Or take the 534 PCH bus!--nearest stop is Carbon Canyon Rd.-- www.metro.net.) Please allow for plenty of time to find a parking spot, since availability of beach parking is unpredictable.
Tip: Want the easiest parking?--Try the 9am safari.
Rangers should arrive at the base of the accessway (on the beach--look for the uniform) to assemble each safari at least 15 minutes in advance of each start time. If you arrive early, you can walk on the wet sand anywhere, and on the dry sand (at least 10 ft. from the houses) on the FIRST 4 PROPERTIES TO THE LEFT (downcoast). Please do not use the dry sand upcoast or elsewhere.
Bring: Snack for the potluck (just for you), water if you need it, sun protection, and extra layer for warmth.
Please note: No bathroom available at meeting point--Try the fast-food restaurants just upcoast on the PCH.
Dogs, sadly, are not allowed on the beaches.
Hope to see you at the beach!
